Pluggin’ Right Along….

I’ve been diligently inputting the information for my database.  At this point, I’m not sure if I’m going to include the actual product that they bought — but we’ll see. 

I’m using Microsoft Access.  It’s a new program for me, so I’ve had to tinker around with it quite a bit.  Since I’m not doing a real sophisticated project, I’m sure it’s going to work out fine.

If I can manage to keep it up, this database could prove to be invaluable.  I think just having the basic customer information will be helpful for contacting prior customers when sales or new catalogs become available.  Since I don’t anticipate doing specialized mailings, I’m not sure that the detailed info about their prior purchases is necessary.

The primary function of this database will be to use it to make mailing labels to send out catalogs or promotional flyers.  It will also be beneficial to have the customers’ phone numbers at my fingertips when it’s time to re-schedule parties with the new catalog.

I’m an Independent Designer for Home & Garden Party and I will design my database to include my customers’ personal information (name, address, phone number) in addition to when they attended a party, what kind of party it was (in-home or catalog), as well as what they bought.
